    Head over to Rockit for a glimpse of Adam Burish.

    Bashing your opponent on the ice can work up quite a manly hunger, so thank goodness the Blackhawks players live in a great city for someone in need of a solid meal.

    With the recent success, the boys have been spotted dining all over Chicago -- or perhaps, now people are just paying attention.

    Either way, here's some spots you just might run into a handsome battle-scarred Blackhawk.

    • David Burke’s Primehouse: Over Memorial Day weekend, Adam Burish and Patrick Sharp ate a pre Stanley Cup Finals dinner at David Burke's famed restaurant, noshing on Spinach salad (complete with bacon vinaigrette candle), Caesar salad, shrimp cocktail, Classic filet, Kansas City sirloin, tempura green beans and some spuds.  
    • Hub51: Crunchy tuna rolls and chicken nachos are among the fave dishes of regular Blackhawks diners Brian Campbell,  Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Niklas Hjalmarsson and more.
    • Market Bar: Not only do the players like Patrick Kane nosh here, but so do its biggest fans. Vince Vaughn has also been spotted here recently watching the Hawks on the flat screens while eating dinner -- when he’s not sitting front row at the United Center for the games, that is.
    • Sunda: Both Dave Bolland and Brian Campbell love the Lobster Wagyu Roll. Campbell has also been seen eating the Miso Black Cod. Other hawks that have dined at this rocking hotspot include Marian Hossa & Tomas Kopecky.
    • Joe’s Seafood: Left winger Andrew Ladd, right wing Troy Brouwer and center Colin Fraser have been known to indulge in the Alaskan King Crab Legs, Jumbo Stone Crab, 16 oz Bone-in Filet and 20 oz Bone-in Ribeye. Oh, and they always save room for some signature pie; Key Lime, Havana Dream and Banana Cream are their weakness.
    • Rockit Bar and Grill: It’s no surprise that athletes love Rockit just as much as everyone else. Patrick Kane, Kris Versteeg, Tomas Kopecky, Adam Burish and Campbell have all been seen noshing on Rockit Pockits, while Dustin Byfuglien likes the Reuben Sandwich.
    • Japonais: Byfuglien dined at Japonais recently and, when he did, a table full of fans requested to buy his dinner.
    • The Pony: After the Chicago Blackhawks sealed their first conference title win since 1995 over Vancouver last month, the entire team headed to Lakeview neighborhood spot, The Pony, to celebrate their win. Who knows what they ate, but we're guessing the cocktail menu got a workover.
